SLOW DOWN AND IJVEI Letter To The Editor Last week's Letter to the Editor evidently stimulated some thinking in the commun- ty; at least a number of citizens expressed their thoughts and ideas o n the situation to me and I imagine my thoughts were discussed and perhaps :ussed between others. Among the comments made o me by various individuals — one party told me they thought I had been misinformed about my information on the type of housing project; that there were several different kinds such as H.U.D. and F.H.A. housing for low rental ito individuals with low income, etc. This party explained that it was a good deal for the town, as it increased business for the ocal businessmen; the grocery stores, service stations, bank, school, etc. and that the corporation voluntarily contributed $1200 per year to the town's expenses. Also told me that after they were in operation they found out ,the income was insufficient to pay the Real Estate Taxes, so they acted to have property removed from taxation. Now that is exactly ithe kind of information I like to get and pass on to other taxpayers. I was under the impression that if I were unable to pay my taxes, they would be declared delinquent and my property would be sold to pay same. About 12 or so individuals told me they were very pleased to see this brought to the attention of the public and some of them had also discussed this with members of the Titonfca Development Corp. Others had only heard rumors recently about property not being taxed. It was also suggested that the taxpayers meet together and get out petitions and also hire a n attorney for assistance. I'm not too inclined to get an attorney immediately, as I think a few citizens can do some investigating and learn a few interesting facts for themselves! I thought about having an attorney read my first letter before having it printed, then realized that poor old Richard M. along with his highly rated council and advisors got into trouble in spite of legal advise, so forgot ,the idea. I would like to use about half a page of the ' Topic" to get my ideas to the public, but don't want to monopolize all the space and would like to see some members of the T.D.C. give ithe public their ideas and reasoning on the subject, as this is a free country and we all have the right to freedom of speech. /s/ Orlo E.
